A Color Wheel

This semester I don’t have any of those annoying generals where you have to write one of those papers you have absolutely no interest in. In fact, I don’t have to write a single paper this term. I was thinking how sweet that was and then I got my midterm assignment for my color theory class. A color wheel. Sounds easy enough right? Well, I guess it was easy, just time consuming. Most color wheels have 6 colors. Some fancy ones have 12. This one had to have 168 colors. I was trying to decide between a big clock and a globe that I could keep in my office. So why not do both. Mixing the paint is the hard part right? How bout a little visual narrative.
